Norman Ackroyd is amongst the most celebrated of all those British contemporary printmakers who continue to use the traditional methods of printmaking. His highly distinctive landscapes concentrate upon the interpretation of the effects of changing weather and light – in his depiction of these phenomena he remains unsurpassed by his contemporaries. His works go far beyond mere reportage, evoking a deep sense of atmospheric mood which captures the character of the landscape portrayed.

Born in Leeds, Norman Ackroyd trained at the Royal College of Art - a technical perfectionist, considered by many to be the most accomplished living British printmaker, Ackroyd has been consistently applauded for his uniquely modern style of aquatint landscapes and was elected a full member of the Royal Academy in 1991.
